Hello. Here it is, a rainy and cold Monday morning in April. Probably just as it should be BUT I just saw a June bug on Friday night AND my peonies are already in BUD so this weather does not bode well for the spring flower display. I wait all winter for the peonies. They are my favorite flower and I hope that their short lived blooms are not destroyed by this hideous weather. Grr.
Work has been so great lately-the shrieks of happy little middle school girls have been echoing down the hall and I have been smiling to myself over their antics. Today though, I find myself once again morphed into Mrs Grundy from the archie comics. I am frowning and grumbly at the imperfections of the system.
Next weekend I am forcing the hubmeister to travel with me to upstate NY, our home away from home, to look at a cabin for sale. It is not what we want, it is not something that will be permanent, BUT it is something for now that will give us a base of operations during the summer and fall when we are visiting the lake and other family members. It looks to be the size of a small dog kennel-jk. It is quite small but tough shit-that is what you get for cheap. That’s the thing, we can actually afford to get this. I don’t really care WHAT it is like, I pretty much plan on making a bid for it. Have to take a chance sometime ya know? It will be a great headquarters for our trips north and we can take the dogs. I really think it is time for us to stop renting our cousin’s house. They have girls who are interested-although a bit late in the game-in taking over. We can’t usually predict when their vacations will be so even though we pay to rent it for the summer we must take a back seat to the cousin’s plans which has often caused a hasty rescheduling on our part and lost vacation time. This will keep our relationships sweet I think.
